Keywords are the cornerstone of your Google Search Ads. They determine when and where your ads can appear on Google.
When someone types in words on Google that are similar to your keywords, your ads can show on the search results page. The more similarity between your keywords and the words used for the Google Search and the more relevance your ads provide to searchers, the higher the chance that your ads will show.
Another aspect determining whether your ad shows up is the used match type. There are four match types in Google Ads: broad match, broad match modifier, phrase match, and exact match. Cobiro makes use of all the match types except broad match.
Broad match: this is the most generic match type. Your ads can show up on searches that include misspellings, synonyms, related searches, and relevant variations to your keywords.
Broad match modifier: these settings are slightly less generic than broad match types. In order for your ads to show, the searches must include the keywords you added or close variations of them.
This match type is created by adding a plus sign (+) in front of each word in the search phrase.
Phrase match: your ads will show when people search for your phrase or close variations of it, even if they include words before or after it. In the event customers add a word at the middle of the search term, your ad won’t show.
Exact match: this is the most specific match type. Your ads will be triggered when people make a search that includes the exact term, or relevant variations of the exact term.
However, if additional words are added to the search, your ads will not show up.
